Chicago Polish Environment

At recycling is a real priority. Research has shown that vital natural resources such as oil will be in short supply in the future. (Approximately half the world oil supply has been depleted and more will be consumed with increasing efficiency with most of the world's oil consumed in the next 40 years.) Oil produces wonderful temporary storage containers for food called plastics. Plastics can and should be recycled. Glass, card board, paper and aluminum can also be recycled. Chicago has many recycling centers available. All one has to do is drop off the material and they take care of the rest.
